Product Overview

Nasturtium officinale

Add snappy, peppery flavor to salads, omelets, and potato salads. Classic ingredient in finger sandwiches served at an English tea.

With a peppery and pungent flavor, this ancient plant is popular around the world for its nutritional and medicinal value. High in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as providing potassium and calcium, watercress has been studied for its antioxidant properties. At home along streams and lakes, watercress can also be grown in moist, partly shady gardens and indoors in containers.
